McBeth-Evans Glass, American Sweetheart Depression Glass Replacements
Replacement Crystal in the McBeth-Evans Glass American Sweetheart patterns.
The Macbeth-Evans Glass Company was an American glass company that created very fine glassware with beautiful designs but is famous for making depression glass.
McBeth Evans was located in Charleroi, Pennsylvania and started in 1899. Before 1929, Macbeth-Evans made hand blown glass before the use of machines became popular. This method was adopted by the company in 1930. The company later merged with Corning Glass Works in Charleroi by 1936.
The most popular color used in tableware was pink, and the glass made was thinner than other companies of the time, thus more fragile. No candy jars, candle holders, cookie jars, or butter dishes were made by Macbeth-Evans. Pattern names were referred to by letter. Ruby red and Ritz blue colors were used in the 1930s glassware, beginning with the American Sweetheart pattern. American Sweetheart was referred to as the R-pattern
